You will have to manage him 24/7, or put him down.

I know this sounds harsh, but I speak from experience. My husband's late wife's dachshund could be vicious but my husband couldn't even think of putting the dog down because it had been her dog. We managed him until he died at the age of 17 a couple of years ago. IT WAS VERY VERY HARD.. He was never allowed out in public without a leash and muzzle, he was crated when we had visitors, etc. That being said, we were taking a chance that I was never fully comfortable with.


Good luck with this, my heart really goes out to you.

If you are going to follow this course, please be sure that whoever takes him agrees to return him to you if it doesn't work out, and lets you monitor the situation. A dog like this can end up in horrible circumstances if the person who takes him realizes they can't handle him after all. Peace.
